Secure Image Transmission Using Fractal and 2D-Chaotic Map
AbstractA chaos-based cryptosystem has been suggested and investigated since last decade because of its sensitivity to the initial condition, unpredictability and ergodicity properties. The paper introduces a new chaotic map which helps to enhance the security of image transmission by blending the superior fractal function with a new 2D-Sine Tent composite map (2D-STCM) to generate a key stream. A trajectory map of a proposed 2D-STCM show a wider chaotic range implies better unpredictability and ergodicity feature, suitable to design a cryptosystem. A fractal based image encryption increases the key space of the security key up-to hundreds of bits, thus secure the proposed cryptosystem from brute-force attack. The requirement of confusion and diffusion are fulfilled by applying chaotic circular pixel shuffling (CCPS) to change the pixel position repeatedly and the execution of an improved XOR operation i.e., complex XOR, designed to increase the encryption quality. The proposed cryptosystem has been analyzed using statistical analysis, key sensitivity, differential analysis and key space analysis. The experimental result proves that the new scheme has a high security level to protect the image transmission over the network. View Full-Text
